Frequently Asked Questions about Skilled Nursing:

Skilled nursing care is for individuals with medical needs requiring the skill of round-the-clock licensed nurses and therapists. Skilled nursing is appropriate for people recovering from illness, injury, surgery or stroke that need intensive therapy and care to gain optimal well-being and health.

Situations are as varied as individuals. Most often, candidates for long-term care have an ongoing health condition or permanent disability. They may suffer from chronic severe pain or the natural symptoms of advanced age that led to frailty and need for 24-hour medical supervision.

The Village Care Center is Medicare-certified. With a qualifying hospital stay, Medicare typically covers days 1-20 of the stay. A Medicare-set daily coinsurance rate will be assessed for days 21-100. Medicare payment rules are very stringent and vary depending on a number of factors. Your out-of-pocket expense may vary based on any additional insurance coverage that you may have. Visit for more details.
